You could easily spend a whole day here, and if you buy the unlimited rides pass, it’s great value!
We just had a couple of hours so rode the rollercoaster and skyride, and used the arcade. Paid individually. Still good value.
Gets busy on weekends.
$15 to park in the car park, but for shorter visits use a parking meter at $1.50 per hour.......take lots of quarters!

Very clean, friendly staff, fun rides. My kids love the boardwalk. We visit a couple times a year with friends. Always a fun time.

During the summer season there is a lot to see and do along the Boardwalk, a classic. Sort of old school. Lots of rides, lots of fun food and the beach.
